Old River Road, Woodstock … fabled with antiquity … with love
laughing water her companion attacked for a view
along with the out of turn bull frogs, singing peepers, trout, foxes, raccoon, deer
… with birds, lightning bugs on and on …
Where are the Amazon warriors to protect her?
Where is Woodstock Town Hall to protect her?
Giant machine ripping cherry maple pines out of the ground sad … ghastly
crunch, snap, thrown into a pile all for a view of the Ottauquechee River … come down enjoy the view
over the dying trees
you can’t miss it
you will feel tears
… of once historical old River Road.
James “Ivan” DeRosia, Woodstock
